     This family genealogy has been hard to trace and has been compiled from bits and pieces from word of mouth to census records, ship manifests any other searchable works.  One source said that Henrietta Brightenstein Hallengren  was born in 1839 in Nassau, Germany and at the age of eight years came to America with her parents who were also of German birth.  Their first home was in Maryland and they made a sojourn of three months to Virginia, after which they came as far west as Missouri and seven years later removed from that state across the plains to California. 
     The journey was made with wagons and ox-teams and six months were spent on the road, after which the family settled in Eldorado County.

     In the 1850 Census of Page County, Virginia, John and Charlotte are living with the Geo. Bridenstine family and I have found no further record of them.  Christian and George were living near each other, were they brothers?  I believe so.  Both on the Neptune.  William in the same County, not on the Neptune, another brother? I believe so.  See the 1860 census below.  John was not found on the 1850 census or the Neptune but does have children with similar names.  Maybe someone has the information to prove or disprove these relationships.  Please contact me if you can help me, or I can help you.  bonnieg@bonniegrant.com

     Since this page has been online, I have had two contacts.  The first one from Darin who traced his line back to a Theodore Bridenstine born about January 1849 in Germany who married Sarah Elizabeth Kemmere in 1873 in Ohio.  At this point, we do not see a connection but appreciate the contact and will keep looking.
     The second contact comes from Kathy in Arizona and she is descended from #2. GEORGE C. BREIDENSTEIN.  We have been comparing and sharing and have learned a lot and learned that we have a lot to learn.  It's pretty interesting, not only are there various ways of spelling the surname, but they all seemed to name their sons, Augustus, Christian, John, or Theodore.
     Thanks, and feel free to contact me.  bonnieg@bonniegrant.com
